Between DC Comic’s “The New 52” and Marvel “Now”, it is refreshing to see ongoing titles with more than a 100 issues; series that have a rich history and aren’t afraid of high numbers. I used to follow and collect Sara Pezinni’s adventures as Witchblade and I can’t remember why I stopped following the Image Comic (it could have had to do with the awful television adaption of the comic, or more likely, life got in the way).
Issue #167 kicks off a new arc with Part 1 of “Absolute Corruption” from writer Tim Seeley and artist Diego Bernard. It always used to be fun when Sara was forced to team up or faceoff against past Witchblade wielders. Here we go again…
Official Description: The bitter, former Witchblade bearer Katarina has transcended the Faerie realm, travelling to Chicago to intercept the fugitive murderer Toio Mulranny. And she’s going to get the Witchblade’s help to catch him, whether Sara Pezinni wants to or not.
The issue hits stands on Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 from Image Comics.
